About the Facility

  • True Redundancy

    Not only is EWR1 well above the floodplain, but is engineered for true “2n” power redundancy - protecting against failure of not only utility power, but also subsystems like generators / UPS.

  • Private Racks Available

    EWR1 can support dedicated Packet Private colocation racks, allowing heavy users to mix on-demand bare metal from the Packet platform with dedicated equipment.

  • Certifications for Sensitive Workload

    Based on a strong security and operational model, Packet's EWR1 facility supports numerous state, local and federal compliance regimes, including, SOC2, PCI-DSS and HIPAA.

  • Rich Connectivity

    Packet's network offers a unique combination of performance and automation, including unparralled access to carriers, ISP's and other networks via our own dark fiber network and direct interconnection to major broadband ISPs, CDNs, and public cloud providers.

Working with Packet has been a joy. They're able to handle our complex global anycast network and BGP peering requirements. We look forward to expanding to every future location they offer.
